My Romantic Monday Post: Has more to do with Love than Romance. I guess you can say today…I am romancing myself!
I tried so hard to ignore my depression this year to the point of losing myself completely. I want to be noticed for my light, my smile, my positivity…so I fought so hard to ignore the horrible despair and sadness that was feasting on my insides. I desperately needed help and I finally ended up getting it. I still struggle sometimes, I always will but things are finally looking up. I am once again humbled and blessed by the friends and family who never lost faith in me, who continue to feed me the wisest of words to help me overpower the demons of my imagination.
Thank you especially to…Josh, Yousef, Anthony, Zach, Chris, Stacy, Matthew, and my family. You made me realize I am NOT alone, I am not crazy, and I have the strength I need to do the right things! Thanks to Edward and all my other duet friends…for writing with me and helping me focus creatively. To my friend Ramey…thanks for trying despite having had to deal with the worst of me.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!!!
The lights are my favorite part of Christmas
More even than all the good cheer
The lights cut through the darkness
Illuminating the presence of friends so dear
The very meaning of Christmas
In the traditional carols we hear
Setting to music the happiness
Of friendships that blessed us this year
The beauty of Christmas
Is that we can look at all our tears
And realize our fears are our strength
And love isn’t gone…it is always here
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” ~Matthew 5:14-16
